Nestled along the timeless Teign Estuary is historic Shaldon, an idyllic little fishing village with its quaint thatched cottages, period houses, and narrow winding streets. Guests will easily succumb to the stylish coastal charms of this luxury retreat, situated in the heart of the village, less than 1 minute's stroll to the beach.

Hawks Cay provides three floors of New England-style accommodation, all beautifully conceptualised by its Interior Designer owner, Chrissie Fairlamb.

With its nautical tone and family appeal, this beautiful, recently renovated period home provides a restful and inviting ambiance in all seasons. The practical layout is ideal for entertaining and relaxing, with the entrance hall and principal reception rooms all situated on the bright and welcoming ground floor; which has slate floors and under-floor heating throughout, with direct access, to the sunny private courtyard garden.

With its cool palette of classic blues and creams alongside high-quality wood furniture and large comfortable sofas, the spacious Sitting Room invites guests to kick off their shoes and simply relax.

The sitting room is equipped with all the must-have mod cons, which include a 48’’ Panasonic 3D TV with Free Sat channels and a Blue Ray DVD player, along with a wood-burning stove.

The large sunny kitchen with French doors opening onto the private courtyard is a naturally bright and uplifting setting for relaxed dining and summertime feasts.

The kitchen, has a large dining table and chairs, along with up-to-the-minute appliances which include a range cooker with induction hob, microwave, toaster, electric kettle, De Longhi-Dolce Gusto coffee machine, dishwasher, and an American-style fridge freezer with ice maker. There is also a TV and DVD player, iPod/iPad docking station with DAB radio.

The Utility room is equipped with a washing machine, iron, and ironing board. Situated off the hallway is a cloakroom WC.

From the comforts of the ground floor, a staircase leads to the first floor, where the coastal-style decoration continues throughout.

There are three bedrooms and a family bathroom. Bedroom 1 has a King-size bed, Bedroom 2 has a double bed, & bedroom 3 has a single bed that can be made up of 2 singles (trundle bed). Superior mattresses, bed linen, and pillows ensure that guests can enjoy a good night’s rest.

The coastal allure flows through to the family bathroom, which has a traditional-style bathtub and a separate shower. There is a shaving socket in this bathroom.

At the far end of the first-floor hallway, a staircase leads to the master bedroom suite. Decorated in a restful palette of soft whites and blues, this beautiful suite provides a welcome refuge at any time of day. The vaulted ceiling along with the king-size nickel bedstead adds a touch of romance. The ensuite bathroom with a classic bathtub completes the comfort of this suite.

All bedrooms have wall-mounted TV/DVD players and are equipped with hairdryers.

This lovely holiday home benefits from underfloor heating throughout the ground floor, and gas-fired central heating on the first and second floors.

There is one covered private parking space provided, which is located adjacent to the property. The height of the carport is approximately 2 metres.

From its desirable location in the heart of Shaldon village, guests have situated a pleasant stroll away from the beach and all amenities.

Shaldon has a butcher, a baker (no candlestick maker), and shops selling local produce as well as friendly pubs and charming cafes. The village offers holiday appeal in all seasons and provides coastal-view gourmet and bistro restaurants enabling guests to wine and dine out as many times as they wish during their stay, this explains why Shaldon is fast becoming a top foodie destination and putting the Teign Valley on the gastro-map.

The Shaldon ‘to-do list includes a visit to the family-friendly Shaldon Zoo, Shaldon Cliffs Pitch & Putt. It is an easily accessible location for enjoying coastal walks, classic beach days, scenic picnics, or a thrilling day out on the water with a boat/kayak rental, water sports, and sailing. The passenger ferry takes visitors across the estuary to Teignmouth. Guests can explore more of the South Devon coast by hopping on the Teignmouth Circular (operated by the Dartmouth Steam Railway and River Boat Company). A host of other attractions also await guests including the botanical gardens, the lively appeal of Torquay and a treasure trove of National Trust sites.
